07-14-2009, 09:36 PM #82Will jailbreak erase touch 2g music and pics on 3.0?
Brand new to Modmyi and Iphone/Ipod Touch. I have one question regarding jailbreaking the touch and 3gs. Will dong the jailbreaking process erase contacts, photos, music? I have a friends touch 2g and will update the firmware to 3.0 via itunes, but I don't want to lose any pics or music that is on their touch so I just wanted to make sure before I tried this.

edit: sorry, wrong thread
07-16-2009, 06:24 PM #84same problem
then i unplugged the itouch and plugged it back in and restarted the program. it skipped the dfu mode cuz apperently my itouch was still in it. and it took like 2 more seconds random fast activity then it said it was all done. i went on to itouch and everything was the same. i cant even get the hdd icon on the itouch screen. not sure why this is happening at all. right now im trying to jailbreak when itouch is at 3.0 firmware and some of my apps and music and pics and such is still on there. Does this have to be done when it is on 100% clean 3.0 firmware? so i believe we both have the exact same issue. i hav 32 bit btw.
great success. iv been trying alllll day on my computer which is vista. finally got it to work...NOT ON VISTA. i tried all day on all versions .72 .73 .8. gahh. then i gave up trying on my computer. and tryed on my moms computer which is a windows xp. got it to work FIRST TRY!! took awhile in the process becuase of using a intel celeron processor when im used to quad core on my machine. but it workd. 7hrs on vista=fail. less than half an hour on windows xp=success.

Perfect install on iPod Touch 1G 3.0 with Vista x64 and iTunes 184.108.40.206.
I ran the installer in "Compatabilty Mode" set to Windows XP SP2.
All of the apps I purchased with iTunes were restored to iPod after the installation.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!!
Awesome indeed, and I am very excited to explore this world. This is my first iPod Touch.

hey i'm new here and this questions probably be asked a lot but will jailbreaking cause me to lose my save game data? I've looked on other sites some say yes because you have to restore before JB. but others say no and that you don't have to restore before using redsnow. if someone could clear this up for me it would be very helpful. also will backing up my ipod also keep my save files safe if the JB goes wrong and i have to restore?

cant find my ipsw file...
i run XP home edition
does that differ from pro in any way?
07-23-2009, 12:36 AM #91
your ipsw file should be under CDocuments and Settings\(your account name here)\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPod Software Updates
if it is not there then.. well i got no idea...
hope you get it

Ok, easier. Just save to your desktop both files. Then it's right in front of you. Later your choice is to delete or save in another area. XP or XP-pro make no difference in this case, however Vista has become an issue for some people.

Redsnow crashes whenever I reach dfu mode; around when the ipod's screen has the message:downloading jailbreak data
07-23-2009, 08:13 PM #94
it do everything it says but the screen just turns from black to white to a back lit black and then nothing happens but redsnow says its done installing. after 15min the screen turns off and i can turn it back on but its just the same no cydia. I've done it 4 times now and its the same thing everytime

It got stuck at downloading Jailbreak data , when I was jailbreaking my ipod touch 2G with 3.0 firmware.
07-25-2009, 03:26 PM #96
